[Build Logs] Snef's Bloody Angel

Level 8

start another build, this one is for me, my personal Gaming Rig

Snef's Bloody Angel

i need more .........muscle......
but Horizontal board is not for me
i need a real "TOWER of POWER", at begening, Enthoo Primo white was my first choice
but i saw new case on caselabs store, The SMA8
i sent an email to caselabs to know the shipping rate
and i finally choose Caselabs SMA8

generally i try to search for a unique or special color combination but not this time
keep it simple

Hope you will enjoy it

Level 8

another update
tubing is done, i love this case, a lot of place to do any loop you want

Usual Cpu Shoot, but i want to show the Memory block, to much nickel, add little bit of white and the result is really good

i cheated on this one, use flex tubing on bottom, why not?
no one will see it

hope finish it this week end , but sure, leak test

Level 8

Leak test and Night shoot

i had a leak on CPU loop (back fitting on top rad) , my fault, forgot to tight it :oops:

i really like these night shoot, still need to see with fan led

pretty closed to the end

Hey Snef - flex in the basement is the only way to go. I hard piped my last one and after fighting things several times with tight fits I was kicking myself for not knowing better. This is perfect as usual.

Level 7
it was an excellent design. It looks very elegant. Congratulations.:o:o
